7970s very expensive compared to slightly slower 580s... - Page 8

post #71 of 72
I dunno boys. I just put crossfire 7970s in my 2nd PC and they're beast - they both OC'ed to 1200 at stock voltage, and I went up to 1275 with a bump in voltage. At stock the 7970 is about
20% faster, but when overclocked....holy jesus, i'm getting framerates 50% faster than 580 sli in some cases. Its pretty impressive.

I can definitely say most games with crossfire 7970s are signifigantly faster, and by that I mean generally 30-40 fps faster. I don't have anything bad to say about the GTX 580s
but 7970 deserves credit...they are beastly.

For what its worth wink.gif Stay objective!
